FAS' REPLY TO MEDIA QUERY REGARDING FOLLOW-UP ON SCUFFLE DURING COMMUNITY SHIELD GAME
“The matter is being investigated by an Inquiry Committee which comprises external independent members including legal professionals. The Inquiry Committee is supported by three senior staff – none of whom is the reporting officer of the staff concerned or has a vested interest in the outcome of the Inquiry.
“We take a serious view of any attempt to discredit the integrity of the Association, its staff or volunteers as well as false and unsubstantiated accusations or suggestions that the conduct of the ongoing investigation has not been independent. We will not hesitate to take the necessary action against anyone who wilfully attempts to cast a doubt on the integrity and impartiality of the Association.”
